Comment from Richard Willan on photo #12010
This individual was subject to a massive predator attack some time ago and, at the time of the attack, it cast off (autotomised) most of its cerata leaving only a few close the dorsal midline. The autotomised cerata have all started to regrow and they appear as short, brown, buds.
